Jeddah, October 17, 2011
Saudi Business Machines (SBM), the general marketing sales representative of IBM in Saudi Arabia, recently hosted roadshows in Jeddah, Riyadh and Dammam to showcase IBM’s latest storage solutions and their functions.
The company’s latest in storage solutions offer optimised smart storage solutions that ensure flexibility and scalability. These systems can scale up from the smallest configuration to the largest configuration non-disruptively, availability and resiliency with higher performance levels, said a statement.
IBM’s solutions assure decrease in risks related to information capital and guarantee businesses continuity, the statement said.
“The most advanced model of IBM’s System Storage has been designed to support even the most challenging business applications”, said Fadhel Al-Shaikh, vice president of systems sales, SBM. “With latest smart storage improvement, the new model has unparalleled resiliency features”.
“The ability to ensure your data is secure even after it has been removed from your physical storage is essential to all organisations. IBM’s latest smart storage solutions enable professional entities to achieve their business objectives and goals by addressing the needs of important business applications,” Al-Shaikh said.
Noting the amount of security breaches that have occured in recent times, IBM developed the latest smart systems to increase security and reduce complexity with innovative self-encrypting drives.
These self-encrypting storage systems automatically secure all data on a disk drive that is encrypted once they are removed from the storage system, therefore ensuring that if it was to get lost or stolen the information would be unreadable, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
